Travel theme: Street Markets & Today

While the states don’t generally offer the typical street markets you’d see in South America or Asia, we have our own – slightly more organized perhaps- version. The opening day of the Phinney Farmer’s Market in Seattle offered me the opportunity to work on this last week’s challenge from  Ailsa  at Where’s my Backpack.

Oh, as well as WordPress’s Weekly Photo Challenge (okay, so while these photos were not technically taken TODAY, they were taken on the day I first read the new challenge prompt, which states “This day. The day you’re reading and reacting to this post. No rules or guidance on what to post other than the photo must be taken today! Don’t cheat, don’t go into your photo archives on your computer, don’t link to an old post“).

He knew I was taking photos in his direction, and so he kept adjusting his stance and was looking generally uncomfortable

Beautiful beets

It was a nice day for a market, and mostly everyone was obliging to the photographer. :)

    • Thanks Masa! I’m trying to get better about getting close to people when I photograph a place like this. So far, I’ve only had good experiences with people, even in situations where they should think it weird that I’m photographing them, they seem cool with it! Congrats on your win in the Blogathon giveaway! :)
